A Step Back in Time: Sheridan Select Market

Saturday, January 12, 2019
Last weekend, we took a drive down to McMinnville and Sheridan, Oregon as I wanted to show Adam the grocery store that my Dad owned for 35 years.  It was weird how many things were still the same, yet so different with my Dad no longer the owner.  He sold it when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer after owning it for 35 years.  It wasn't easy seeing it after so many years, and I was still feeling a bit tearful about our infertility, but I'm glad I showed Adam, as it was a big part of my childhood.  I think he liked seeing it, too.

At the end of especially hard days, sometimes you have to reach for a bumper sticker and laugh.  All we have, after all, is the here and now.  P.S.  We did stop at Spirit Mountain Casino and Lodge, where smoking is allowed.  It's hard to imagine a time in my life when that was the norm.  We shared a nice dinner (restaurant was non-smoking, thank-goodness), then drove home in the wind and the rain.  x o, Karli
